A student in the Lake Oswego School District has won the 2017 Congressional Art Competition in Oregon's Fifth District for the fifth year in a row.
Lake Oswego High School senior Tuesday Lewman was the overall winner for her piece, "The Dynamic Personality Behind the Brand."
LOSD student also completely dominated the rest of the competition:
— The First Runner-Up is Lakeridge High School freshman Sasha Hennig for "Gauche."
— The Second Runner-Up is LOHS junior Wooyeon Kim for "Childhood Memories."
— And the Third Runner-Up is Lakeridge junior Alexandra Lyon for "Royals."
Established by Congress in 1982, the competition involves thousands of high school students from throughout the nation. The art by an overall winner from each participating congressional district is exhibited for a year in the U.S. Capitol Building in Washington, D.C. The overall winners, including Lewman, also will receive a trip to D.C. to view their art on display.
The United States has 435 congressional districts, and Oregon has five congressional districts. Schrader's district covers a swath of the coast, strips across the Willamette Valley and reaches east almost to the Warm Springs Reservation.
The panel of judges was: Nora Brodnicki, Clackamas Community College Arts Department chairwoman; David Wilson, gallery director with the Salem Art Association; and Laura Mack, Chemeketa Community College Art Department chairwoman.
The winners learned of their honor during a reception on Tuesday in Salem.
